Comedy website CollegeHumor has a new episode of its original animated series, The Adventures of Kim Jong Un.
The CollegeHumor Original animated series The Adventures of Kim Jong Un serves, essentially, as an extended metaphor for the self-love propaganda-filled world that is the North Korean government. An imaginative example of what an American-style Saturday morning cartoon would look like if they were made in North Korea—itself a humorous notion—it explores Kim Jong Un’s personal conflict as he balances life as a teenager with a sudden position of massive responsibility, resulting in a very funny and endearing combination. Perhaps the ultimate propaganda, it is, of course all written, directed, and animated by Kim Jong Un—at least according to the credits.
In the new episode, inspired by Dennis Rodman’s recent visit to North Korea, the world-renowned basketball superstar Kim Jong Un teams up with his new BFF Dennis Rodman to defeat Yao Ming and a team of aliens in a game of “Korea-ball.” It was only a matter of time before these two teamed up on the court, and naturally, Kim Jong Un is a true Korea-ball master.
